Santos FTF- who's going?
« on: March 16, 2009, 06:38:37 PM »
My g/f and I are registered for the whole weekend. We'll probably head up to Gainesville one night to see my brother and go climbing at the Gainesville Rock Gym.

Who else will be there?
We see the world not as it is, but as we are.

This weekend, is Santos only open to those people that have tickets for the FTF?  Just wondering if people that don't want to deal with any of the events up there can still ride the trails.

I will be riding through on Saturday.  However, I may be leaving early Friday and could possibly make Santos maybe even camp there.  Anybody wanna lend me two trees from your camp spot to put up my hammock...

I am not going this year but did attend last year.  The campground is only opened to paid FTF participants.  Not the trails.  Also the sag stops along the EPIC route on saturday are for those wearing the FTF bracelets.  You can still ride all other trails and park at the Santos TH.  You may be asked to pay an entrace fee though.  There should be all kinds of demo bikes that day.  Kool show on Sat afternoon at the vortex that anyone can catch.
 
Sorry if I am wrong about this.  But it seem pretty open for all.  Except the main campground of course.

Yes.  They lost the combo to the lock and they had to use ax to brake chain to let us out on Saturday night.  I was in a hurry to get home to a kid emergency so I was not happy.  I was hoping to get a ton of riding done but rains friday night kept us from that.  The epic ride Saturday was okay but wish I had gone our and done the Grueler version of it.  The vortex show was great.  Now, if I had only remember my ear plugs for those freaking every hour trains that go by the campground at 2am... arggg....  ;D
